Biography

Prior to founding StyleOwner and making the natural transition into fashion, Joel taught robotics at Penn in the electrical and systems engineering department. There he developed a successful inner city education initiative using robotics in classrooms under an NSF grant.

During graduate school at the University of Michigan, Joel was a part of the DARPA (defense department research) grant where he helped develop the world’s fastest legged robot (RHex).

When not building robots or websites, Joel can be found cooking with his wife Anna, playing in Central Park, or turning the temperature down in the office (not to worry—he kindly bought Snuggies for everyone in the office).
